    For what purpose do you plan to wear this suit? Business or casual?
    Why don't you just ad some color. Green tie would go great with it. Or turquoise. Red tie is so expected and so boring.
    Purple could also go nice with blue....

    Try it out man. Play around with it.

    Is it for business purposes?
    Why don't you add some color. Red tie would look great. But It can look a bit aggressive. Try some pale blue, turquoise tie. Maybe even a light green.
    Since the suit looks serious enough you can be brave and ad some splash of color IMHO. But everything depends on the occasion.

    Play a little. :)

    Always appreciate ur input!
    Yes, the whole reason y I bought this for work was to put a little spice into wearing traditional black, navy blue solid suits. It is for work but I would love to play around and look good. All I did was a solid suit with white shirt and a nice tie. I wud like to break away from that.

    Avoid a matching pocket square and tie, it looks twee. A less prominent pocket square which picks out colours in the tie looks cool or else a strip of white linen/cotton.

    The jacket in the picture is too tight and right shoulder looks a bit big, also need to show a fraction more cuff.

    I like the tie, but a power statement I think is what your looking for here. Multicolour ties provide real power statements, but circumstance depending (it ain't me).

    I have grown fond of my white silk pocket square and i always wear it. It has become a must for me. I dont plan on matching the pocket squares. The picture probably looks tight because it is e.zegna's most slim fitting suit, the torino cut. I should try on a red tie and see how it looks. Also, brown shoes or black shoes? I am leaning towards brown but it appears i can go either way. But the bottom line is i just started wearing suits and have stuck to conservative and safety but this is my first step towards breaking away. I want to have some fun and still look good!

    Black shoes. Pocketsquareguy is the advice to seek.

    It looks too small not because of the slim fit, but because of the poor fit. The closure button is pulling hard - looks ready to pop off if you take a deep breath - and the second button is splayed far and wide apart from its corresponding button hole.

    You might have mentioned that after the first comment on fit.

    Don't wear a red tie.

    With a white shirt, anything in the silver/grey or light blue range would work fine. With a light blue shirt, silver/grey, green. pink, burgundy, lavender (I should note that many on here dislike lavender with light blue; I am not one of them), yellow are all good choices.

    Black shoes are the more conservative choice but brown shoes will be just fine in almost any environment.

    Don't go with silk pocket square and silk tie. If the tie is silk, go with linen or cotton pocket square, and vice versa. Try matching it with the shirt for the start. Then you can experiment and match it with tie.
    Start with black shoes and then switch to brown. For business purposes keep it simple.
    As I said red tie can look too aggressive. But try it out.
    It is OK to play it safe until you become comfortable wearing suits. With time you will be more comfortable and you can play around. This suit looks good and when you add some color to it it will be a killer combination.

    Not awful; the collar is too small (regardless of the knot) and the knot is too big (regardless of the collar).

    I like it better with the square.
